Facebook Announces New Application

Palo Alto, CA - Facebook announced a new application on their popular social networking site. The new application is called “Reality”. In it, Facebook users will be allowed to see the real world that they have left behind by logging into Facebook for hours a day.

The application will be available on the users page, with the left hand banner links on the users wall. When a user uses the new reality application, a window will open up, saying that viewer discretion is advised. Upon clicking the “Okay” button, a loading screen will open, before entering a full screen mode.

The screen will show a live feed video from outside the Facebook home office, complete with trees, birds and natural light. Some viewers may feel ill seeing so many colors and the strange glow filling the screen. The image will update in real time and be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Response has been positive to the new application for those few users who still remember what the outside world is like. There have been a few injuries thus far, but Facebook expects the initial shock to wear off in the coming weeks.

Injuries have included headaches, nausea and vomiting. If you have any of these symptoms while using the new reality application, please discontinue use for at least 24 hours.
